The world is still trying to deal with corona virus and what happened to Kobe Bryant. The threat of corona virus is sending anxiety worldwide. We struggle to accept the loss of Kobe Bryant.
What could be in store for us in the future ? We hope that the corona virus will be contained and solved while we hang on to the legacy of Kobe.
Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ came and said He came that we may have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10). He lived, died and rose again and ascended to heaven after promising He will be back again.
Jesus Christ overcame man's major musts. Man's major musts are must win, must not be put to shame, must be number one, must get what he want.
We learned that Jesus Christ suffered at the cross. This looks like defeat. He was humiliated. He died with criminals (two thieves). He accepted God's will for Him to suffer at the cross and die for sinners, to die for crimes He did not commit.
In Matthew 4:8-10 Satan showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him (Jesus), All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.Then Jesus said to him, Away with you, satan! For it is written, You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.
Today Christians and the world are being tempted and lured with kingdoms of the world and their glory with the intention of defeating or making Christians to be unfruitful or ineffective or be diverted from the love of Jesus.
We need to submit ourselves to God and resist the devil and his temptations.
